Message Stick - Cherbourg
One hundred years ago the Chief Protector of Aborigines in Queensland set up what he described as a dumping ground for the lame, the holt and the incorrigible; the black criminals of the state. The place he was talking about was Cherbourg.
These days Cherbourg is a thriving community of 2 ½ thousand people, 200 kms north west of Brisbane in the heart of Wagga Wagga country. The community recently had its 100 year anniversary and Message Stick was there, but as you will see it was more a celebration of survival than a centenary.
